Sauerkraut Rolls

Pat Duran


Surfed the net to find a recipe like my Grandma Agnes Brendly and Aunt Agnes Bruegel , both immigrants of Hungary and Germany. The recipe I have is only half there, ripped from a page of a recipe tablet. This is the only one I could find, which sounds similar to this handed down recipe...only a few ingredients different..I hope you like it..they are really very good;my mom gave me the recipe paper, but she doesn't know how it got ripped; sometime mom would add crisp bacon...and serve with applesauce or sour cream.

Part recipe from Josef Karst -the krautfather-LOL -the other part from mom
